Basildon Choral Society is rehearsing Duruflé’s Requiem and Haydn’s Nelson Mass this term for its November concert.
Rehearsals take place on Wednesdays at Langdon Hills Methodist Church, High Road, Langdon Hills, from 7.45 pm.
However on 17th and 24th September this venue is not available and we will be switching – for those 2 weeks only – to the Roman Catholic Church of St. Basil the Great in Luncies Road, Vange.
If you don’t know these pieces, take it from us that, if you know and love Fauré’s Requiem you be equally smitten by Duruflé’s, and the Nelson Mass has all the exuberance of Haydn’s work. If you’d like to be a part of the experience, why not come along to a rehearsa, introduce yourself to our chairman, Jen Frizzell, and take it from there !
The November concert takes place on Saturday 29th at St. Martin’s Church, Basildon at 7.45 pm, and BCS will be accompanied by the Sinfonia da Chiesa.
After that we’ll be into our Christmas season culminating in our Family Carol Concert also at St.Martin’s, on Friday 19th Decmber at 7.45 pm.
